I recently posted Nihilist a.k.a "Pre-Entombed". So today, we have Carnage, also from Sweden, who were to become Dismember later on. Again great early and unrefined Swedish DM.

The upload includes all the bonus tracks from the rerelease, i.e. Carnage's demos.

I know they shared members (Carnage also shared Liiva and Amott with Arch Enemy), but I thought Dismember actually *predated* Carnage…
From what I understand, the Carnage demos date from 1989, but Dismember's self-titled demo dates from 1988. I dunno, I could be wrong, or maybe Carnage was around for longer, but just didn't record any demos until '89… any idea what the real story is?

It seems that you're right. I knew that 3 members went over to Dismember when Carnage split up, but never realized Dismember had been existant all the while - so I assumed it would be some sort of "follow up".

Like you said, that's not true - I even just read an interview with Carnage where they state they had been offered to do a split with Dismember and Nihilist. Unfortunately that never happened :(

Heh, another hint that Dismember existed all along (besides comparing release dates, ofc) would be the Carnage bandphoto found on M-A - one guy is even wearing a Dismember shirt...

I have the actual CD, the liner notes where written by Mike Amott, no mention of you came first though, although BOTH bands were active in 1988. Its like the chicken or the egg question.....either way this was the birth of Swedish Death metal and the famous Stockholm sound. A ****ing classic.

A must to have! Amott must reform this Godly band! Luckily I've the Lp and Cd with me. Someone still owned their demo?
